What are you thinking, still hooked on that QHY 16200?
I think in the long term, yes. However in the short term...I may go for the 1600. The nice thing about it, having such low read noise, is it would be better for NB, which I need. Even at it's worst, read noise would be 3.5e-, vs. the 10e- or more with the G3. Significant difference. It would be faster to image with, so I could mosaic if I really needed to for larger fields, and I wouldn't necessarily need to spend exorbitant amounts of time doing so.
I just need to figure out the FW situation. I had considered getting an SX FW for the G3-16200. I may still do that, still go with 2" filters, even though they are more expensive, so long as I could also use that FW on the ASI1600. Then I could use a single FW and save some cost when I finally get the G3-16200.
I just need to figure out if the new 9-pos SX FW would actually work with the ASI1600...and, I am not even sure that is out yet.
